Asian giant hornets


Vespa mandarinia

In AnKang, China in Shaanxi province, giant hornets have injured and killed scores of people.  Government officials are now trying to eradicate these insect's hives and have destroyed about  4,500 nests so far.  The Asian giant hornet is the largest in the world.

This picture is not life-sized.   Can you tell how large it is? 

We've given a little drawing task to ask students to use metric measure to create a life-sized drawing of the insect.
